Back in the day I was a bit of a biker, and still am at heart I guess, which is why I just had to pop into the Sammy Miller Motorcycle Museum while I was down country last weekend.

I’d heard great things about the museum but was completely blown away by the motorcycle collection, not to mention the displays of automobilia. Total racing legend Sammy has spent years collecting and fully restoring the machines and it’s clear to see that even at 89 years of age his passion has not waned!

  Autumn Events

As autumn closes in on us, it’s time to make the most of the last few events on the classic calendar. I’m over at the Kop Hill Climb Festival on Saturday 24th with my ‘sustainable skills network’ hat on.

As an ambassador for the network I’ll be there to help spread the word about the fab work that the Association of Heritage Engineers do. I know you want to know more about them, so here you go: Read more about AOHE

On Sunday 25th I’ll be spending most of the day drooling profusely as I’m heading over to the Milton Keynes Museum for the 10th Anniversary British Leyland Autumn Rally.

Obviously, I’m very excited for this, I mean, who wouldn’t be! So much British Leyland loveliness in one place, a plethora of blandly coloured cars, total heaven. Take a look…
